Instead of going through just one devastating lapse in the first half, as it has in other games, Iowa actually had two and found itself trailing IL by as much as 20 (49-29) in the opening 20 minutes.

IL set season highs in points in a half (54), field goals made in a half (20) and three-pointers made in a half (9) in the first half. The sophomore forward scored 5 points, but his 2 offensive rebounds in limited action injected life into Iowa's offense.

Four players are averaging at least 9.6 points per game for Illini, they are: Leron Black (14.3), Michael Finke (10.6), Aaron Jordan (9.9) and Trent Frazier (9.6) per game.

Iowa, after giving up 54 points in the first half, only allowed 36 and 7 in the second half and overtime, respectively.

Iowa first took the lead 83-82, its first since 4-2, with 3:01 left in regulation on a three-point play by Luke Garza.

Frazier led IL with 27 points, while Leron Black and Aaron Jordan added 18 points each. In 41 minutes, Jordan collected 29 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists, 1 steal and 5 threes with 4 turnovers. Thursday's game marked the Hawkeyes' first Big Ten victory, and dropped the Illini to 0-5 in conference play.

Freshman Luka Garza was a non-factor in the first half against IL on Thursday, scoring two points and grabbing five rebounds in 14 minutes. McCaffery said after the game. January 11 marked the first time the Hawkeyes scored 100 or more points in a Big Ten game since 1995 and the first time doing so on the road in conference play since 1988. But in the second half and overtime, we gave up 63 points. The Hawkeyes grabbed 17 offensive rebounds, leading to plenty of second-chance points - 18 to be exact. Pace tallied a career-high 18 points.

Storm Eleanor clears, but remaining unsettled
In Switzerland, the storm led to power cuts and, according to media reports, at least 11 flight cancellations at Zurich and Basel. They said: 'We are asking road users to remain vigilant with respect to the possibility of flooding and debris this morning.

Both teams are in fairly dire need of a win simply to escape what is now a shared Big Ten cellar. He made 7 of 11 3-pointers.

Four SIUE Cougars scored in double figures, but Belmont spoiled their Ohio Valley Conference home opener 76-61 on Thursday at the Vadalabene Center.

Underwood was frustrated at Thursday's loss, which came on the heels of tough road losses to Minnesota and MI.

"That's a good team", SIUE Head coach Jon Harris said of the Bruins. "They don't beat themselves and are very underrated defensively".

"Frazier is quite a player", McCaffery said.

Harris took encouragement from the play of the SIUE reserves, who accounted for 31 points, or 18 more than Belmont's substitutes. "It's either we play the first half great or second half great". Starters Jalen Henry (11 points), Justin Benton (10 points) and Christian Ellis (eight rebounds, seven points and three assists) also contributed to the cause.
